Love it or loath it, Summer is long and hot in the Mojave Desert.  Before brains fry and tempers flare I complied a list of heavenly places to escape to, any time of day.

  1. A sunrise hike (or just a drive by) in the red rocks canyon puts your life’s drama back into perspective.  Followed by an ice coffee at Samalatte – hands down the best coffee shop in Vegas.
  2. A giggling, energizing couple hours in the morning with my toddler at a water park.  Wet n Wild takes water play to a whole other level!
  3. A sultry afternoon drinking a chilled Pinot Blanc at M Resort pool.  Located just 10 miles from the Strip, it feels like a mini vaca from the pulsing heart of Vegas!
  4. A twilight evening playing on a super green freeway will quelsh a thirst mind.  Legacy Golf Course is a great public choice and serves a very generous G&T.
  5. A spontanious late night out dancing under the stars, and the Eifel Tower, at Chateau

Have you visited Las Vegas?  If so, what is your heavenly place?
